Hey blogging friends! I don't have a recipe to share for my check-in post. All I made today, other than my parsnip soup at lunch and my delicious scrambled egg wrap for dinner (with an Anna Olson blackberry salad on the side) were cookies that I made for my children and dh from Anna Olson's NON- dietary cookbook Sugar.
Sugar was one of the books that I picked up at the library in a fit of Anna Olson recipe love. It might not have been such a good idea. I'll have to hold strong if I make anything else from it. My excuse: dd REALLY wanted chocolate chip cookies for a lunch snack and had been reading the cookbook. I could have made our Cooking Light oatmeal ones again- the kids ask for that recipe, but I was curious about how an Olson "sweet" recipe would be- since she's "known" more for desserts. I guess I coulda GUESSED that they would be pretty darn good. *sigh*
But I do have a NSV concerning them: I only ate one. Can I get a woo hoo? I deserve a woo hoo. The chocolate is all gooey and warm in each bite. (and not to point fingers, but dh had 3.) :P
Should I even say that everyone in the family gave them a big thumbs up? Was there a doubt? LOL. Why are there no picky eaters when chocolate is involved?
Anyway, in better healthy blogger mode, I thought I'd share a new snack find (that maybe everyone already knows about) I found at Costco: the Praeventia bars. My favourite flavour is Cranberry & Pomegranate with Red Wine Extract. The bars have a lot of healthy ingredients in them and I love the bottom coating of dark chocolate. I also enjoy that they come in two mini bars- makes it seem like more, don't you think? Anyway, I think they are well worth their 2 points.
In check-in news, my weight has held the same this week- well, it has actually gone done a tiny little bit (unofficially). I'm good with that since I was kind of snacky this week. For some reason I haven't been doing my online tracking very well the last couple of weeks. Tomorrow I'm going to start fresh for the week, tracking my food. It really makes a difference for me.
Hope everyone had a good week!
